Star CrossedIt's now your time to shine, dear.
Rise up, sweet morning light.
Shine forth upon the earth,
Which warms itself when you're in sight.
I used to yearn for you in my dreams,
But I've long given up the fight.
I understand it's impossible,
And thus is my eternal plight.
Wherever you go, I love you,
And I'll push for you with all my might,
Even though you run from me always.
Sincerely, your friend, the night.
Silence of the SoulThe zero in my heart is getting bigger.
Swallowing all else one by one
Until all that remains is majestic nothing.
It leaves no scars,
No arteries blocked,
No loss of circulation,
But it kills me more than you will ever know.
Day by day I am eaten alive,
Destroyed by that which is nothing
And nothing which is everything.
From nothing I was born,
With nothing I have lived,
Through nothing I shall die,
And into nothing shall I regress.
GeneratorThere is an electricity in my heart.
A throbbing, pulsating beat that never stops.
Every second of every day
It feels ready to burst,
Exploding and sending pieces of me flying every which way.
Yet here I remain,
And the electricity rages on.
I'm hardwired for this.
Heartwired, if you will.
Some days I just want it to end.
I just want to reach into my chest
And pull out this beating heart
And crush the life out of its painful existence.
Some days I just need an adapter.
Something to plug my heart into
Something to POWER.
But I've tried countless outlets
And none of them fit.
And some days
EverestSurely it would take more
To keep him down.
So what if he had lost everything?
So what if he had nothing to begin with?
He had all the time in the world.
He would have to build himself up,
Slowly but surely.
It would be difficult.
It would break him thousands of times
And build him up again
And break him thousands of times more.
But such was the price.
And it was a price he was willing to pay.
Nevermore a loner.
Nevermore an outcast.
Nevermore a failure.
Nevermore the remainder.
Nevermore last place.
There would come a time, he swore,
When every man, woman, and child
The AbyssI am standing on the edge,
Overlooking the darkness.
There is a hole in the floor.
I don't know how it got there,
But it doesn't look like it'll be going away
I'm not sure what's inside.
I don't know how deep it is.
I don't know what's at the bottom.
But I know that if I jump in
I won't be able to come back.
The question that's been plaguing me
Is whether it would be worth it.
Whatever's down at the bottom
Could be the solution to my problems
Or it could be the problem I'm trying to solve.
And the second question
Is whether I'm willing to take the risk.
FireworksI am shouting at the world.
My voice echoes for miles and miles
Like a singer on a stage,
But there is no band.
The music is implied.
But nobody hears it.
HelicaseHelio and I were always sitting on the stairs, chatting about the lamina and occasionally making snide remarks about ribosomes. There wasn't much for us to do. Our job was to simply be, and let the RNA scribble down the letters on our foreheads when they came around every once in a while. Helio was a G, I was a C. It wasn't exactly fulfilling, I suppose. There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we play this huge, huge role in something important, but how can we when we don't even know what that something is? I want to be something that, that has
